Multiannual plan for the stocks of cod, herring and sprat in the Baltic Sea and the fisheries exploiting those stocks

Proposal for a regulation
COM(2014)0614 - C8-0174/2014 – 2014/0285(COD)

Committee on Fisheries

Amendment 8
Anja Hazekamp

Proposal for a regulation
Article 4 – paragraph 1 c (new)

Text proposed by the Commission


1 c. Target fishing mortality range

Central Baltic herring 0

Gulf of Riga herring 0

Bothnian Sea herring 0

Western Baltic herring 0

Baltic Sprat 0

(To replace the mortality ranges in the table)


Since cod is dependent on the availability of herring and sprat for its recovery to healthy population sizes, and since cod is an endangered species central to the functioning of the Baltic sea ecosystem, which is currently in a deplorable state, from an ecological perspective it is urgently required to allow the whole ecosystem a period of recovery. This is best achieved by suspending fisheries overall.
